    Expedition Highlights

    Explore Egypt with special access. Venture into tombs that are normally closed to the public on Luxor's west bank, where we’ve obtained permits for some of the most remarkable sites, including Tutankhamon’s tomb. See King Tut’s mummy, recently returned from the museum to his final resting place. Enter the tomb of Seti I, one of the finest and most colorful tombs in all of Egypt. And the tomb of Nefertari, open to a limited number of visitors each day, has colors so vivid they could have been painted yesterday. And discover modern Egypt through talented and friendly local Egyptologists and welcoming people you’ll meet along the river.

    I walked into the temple and my hair stood up on my arms. It’s that kind of emotional impact.

    I have never met anyone who isn't captivated by Egypt in some way throughout their lives. It’s as if we all have a magnet imbedded within us that pulls us to Africa’s northern desert and the land of the Pharaohs.
